Q: I live in franklin county and I need to get my custody case moved here instead of union county.
He has used his money to break my family apart and it is so hard to keep doing this.
A: The Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure 3(D) states that upon motion of any party or upon its own motion the court may transfer any action to an adjoining county within this state when it appears that a fair and impartial trial cannot be had in the county in which the suit is pending. This means parties must file a motion and allege that it appears a fair and impartial trial cannot be had in their county so it must be transferred to the adjoining county. One consideration is if the motion is not successful and the same judge who is called unfair and impartial must hear the case.
